Hospice is a form of compassionate and quality care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. Hospice affirms life and looks at dying as a normal process. It is based on the belief that each of us has the right to die pain free and with dignity, and that our loved ones will receive the support they need to allow us this right.
